Boxing and poker – maybe a start on something new?

Even though both sports are known for intense action and rough characters, boxing and poker aren’t usually combined. This didn’t stop Gus Hansen (known as one of the biggest full tilt poker names)and Danish poker pro Theo Jorgensen from duking it out. Both know as skilled poker players in both the online poker and live tournament circuit, did quite well as shown in the video.

Crawford comes back to stop Gamboa in round nine

By John J. Raspanti (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): In boxing, one punch can change everything. For four rounds on Saturday night at the Century Link Arena in Omaha, Neb., 2004 Olympic gold medalist Yuriorkis Gamboa boxed beautifully. Defending WBO lightweight champion, and hometown hero, Terrence Crawford, was having difficulties competing with Gamboa. Taller by close to four inches, and with a reach advantage of five, Crawford was being beat to the punch on a consistent basis... Crawford comes back to stop Gamboa in round nine

Algieri: Not Your Average New Yorker

Jason Gonzalez: In the most recent episode of the hit series “Power”, actor Omari Hardwick, who plays the lead character of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, said, “That’s how things happen; your whole life can change in one breath.” Well, it was exactly two weeks ago when Chris Algieri’s life changed forever. The 30-year-old native of Huntington, Long Island acquired the WBO junior welterweight championship after scoring 2014’s colossal upset. Algieri: Not Your Average New Yorker

Farewell but not Goodbye

By Steve Kim: Well, I guess this is it for my run at Maxboxing. You may have heard a few things over the past week or so that I am leaving this website I helped found alongside the likes of Doug Fischer, Gary Randall and Tom Gerbasi in the spring of 2001. Yes, that is true. But I certainly am not leaving the sport of boxing. Quite frankly, I’m a bit of a one-trick pony and the die is cast with me. Besides, there’s nothing else I’d rather do then cover fights and be on the... Farewell but not Goodbye

Omaha! Omaha!

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Ask and you shall receive. As I exit Maxboxing, I’ve been asked about doing one last fight diary/timeline article on my journeys covering the traveling road show that is the game of boxing. And this past weekend took me to Omaha, Nebraska, which is in the heartland of America and now best known for being one of the audible signals for Peyton Manning. Terence Crawford was making the first defense of his WBO lightweight... Omaha! Omaha!

Gamboa Has Tough Task in WBO Lightweight Champ Crawford

By Bill Tibbs (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Tonight, live on HBO from Omaha, Nebraska, local favorite Terence Crawford, 23-0 (16), will defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) lightweight title against Yuriorkis Gamboa, also 23-0 (16). Crawford is a gutsy, tough scrapper who walked into former champion Ricky Burns’ backyard in Scotland in March and took his title. Gamboa is a confident, if not sometimes cocky, multiple world champion who is looking to add the... Gamboa Has Tough Task in WBO Lightweight Champ Crawford

Determan Excited for Hometown Debut

By Bill Tibbs: Undefeated bantamweight Johnny “Wite Boi” Determan, 7-0 (6), will make his hometown debut in support of the Terence Crawford-Yuriorkis Gamboa main event on Saturday at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska. The Top Rank Promotions card will see World Boxing Organization (WBO) world lightweight champion and fellow Omaha native Crawford defend the title he took from Ricky Burns this past March in Glasgow, Scotland. The two main-eventers will both bring... Determan Excited for Hometown Debut

El Boxeo: a Labor of Love

By Steve Kim: Alan Swyer is an acclaimed director, who has “The Buddy Holly Story,” “Rebound” (starring Don Cheadle) and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” on his résumé. “El Boxeo,” which delves into the Latin influence on the world of boxing, was the completion of a trifecta for him. “I participated in three sports as a kid: basketball, baseball and boxing - and not in that order,” said Swyer last Friday afternoon while sitting on the ring apron at the Wild Card Boxing Club. “I had done a film about El Boxeo: a Labor of Love

The New Bismarck?

By Steve Kim: My personal bucket list has always included covering a fight in the state of Nebraska. OK, not really, but believe it or not, I am looking forward to my trip to the “Cornhusker State” this weekend as Terence Crawford defends his WBO lightweight crown against Yuriorkis Gamboa at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha. I have never been to Nebraska; in fact, until a couple of months ago, neither had the promoter of this event, Top Rank Promotions’ Bob Arum, who has promoted bouts across The New Bismarck?

Remembering Top Referee Mitch Halpern

By Ken Hissner: I recently came across comments on one of the best referees I’ve ever seen at the time, Mitch Halpern of Nevada prior to his death. I am a real critic on 90% of the referee’s I see working today but there was something about Halpern that you knew “he was in charge” but didn’t make it “all about him” in the ring. He died a month after his 33rd birthday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It’s hard to believe it will be 14 years ago on August 20, 2000... Remembering Top Referee Mitch Halpern
Next Man Up

Next Man Up

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): As the calendar turned to 2014 and Mikey Garcia was looking ahead to his fight versus Juan Carlos Burgos, the dominant storyline was that the talented Garcia was on the fast-track to eventually face Manny Pacquiao. Never mind Garcia was campaigning at 130 pounds and that the “Pac-Man” is a welterweight (who albeit, can probably easily move down to 140 pounds) but this would be the plan for Garcia.

Second time the charm for Lomachenko

By John J. Raspanti at ringside (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Decorated amateur Vasyl Lomachenko, who came up short in his first bid for a title, got it right Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., by outworking Gary Russell Jr. down the stretch to capture a majority decision and the vacant WBO featherweight championship. Lomachenko (2-1-1 KO), a southpaw, won the fight by committing his attack to the body. Russell Jr. countered with quickness in the opening rounds... Second time the charm for Lomachenko

Russell Faces Lomachenko in Title Tilt

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank)While it’s not technically the main event at the StubHub Center, tonight’s face-off between Gary Russell Jr. and Vasyl Lomachenko for the vacant WBO featherweight title is perhaps the most intriguing fight of Showtime’s tripleheader. While Russell Jr. has a perfect mark of 24-0 (14) and Lomachenko has a record of 1-1 (1), you can make the argument that it’s the Ukrainian who is more battle-tested...

Jesus Soto Karass: Old-School Tough Guy

By Bill Tibbs: When Jesus Soto Karass enters the ring on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, he will venture into difficult but familiar territory. The North Hollywood, California resident will face off against former world champion Devon Alexander in a fight that is his third straight tough outing in a career of tough outings. His last two bouts saw him tangling with former world champion Andre Berto in July of last year before he closed out the year against tough, Jesus Soto Karass: Old-School Tough Guy

Chris Algieri: Two-Faced and a Champion

By Steve Kim: Newly-minted WBO junior welterweight titlist Chris Algieri made the rounds with various boxing scribes early this week with a victory lap after his upset victory over Ruslan Provodnikov last weekend at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. He is an overnight sensation - who was six years in the making. “I’ve been waiting for this for a long time,” he told Maxboxing on Monday afternoon. “I knew I just needed an opportunity and that’s one of the reasons...

Algieri: Homegrown, no Longer Unknown

By Jason Gonzalez at ringside: Brooklyn---In consecutive weeks, the “Big Apple” played host to the “Sweet Science.” But instead of presenting the fistic fury from the home of the New York Rangers, Madison Square Garden, Saturday’s action brought us south of the East River to the Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets, on Atlantic Avenue. It’s remarkable how history has a way of repeating itself. The 30-year-old junior welterweight Chris Algieri of Huntington, Long Island... Algieri: Homegrown, no Longer Unknown

Showtime at StubHub

By Steve Kim: This Saturday night, Showtime gets back into the business of broadcasting boxing from the StubHub Center in Carson, California, a noted fight venue where fistic magic seems to happen consistently. There seems to be a certain mystique to this place and fights break out on a regular basis (in and out of the ring). This structure is really a tennis stadium but the most notable volleys have come from pugilists. This upcoming weekend there is a tripleheader... Showtime at StubHub

Algieri meets the world, outlasts Provodnikov by Split Decision

By Gabriel Montoya: Coming into Saturday night’s WBO junior welterweight championship at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY, the first defense of now deposed champion Ruslan Provodnikov, every pundit in boxing, except for Rick Glaser and Bernie Bahrmasel, counted out newly crowned kingpin Chris Algieri. HBO announcer made a reference to what Provodnikov, a ruthless Siberian slugger who stopped Mike Alvarado to take his title and our hearts with a cry for his loving mother...

Is Algieri a new Level of Higher Education for Provodnikov?

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Ed Mulholland / HBO): Junior welterweight Chris Algieri was born to fight. He’s been doing it his whole life, be it in Kenpo Karate (which he began studying around age nine) to his wrestling background to his career as a pro world champion kickboxer. Fighting has always been a major facet of his life. A pro boxer since retiring from kickboxing with a 20-11 record and two world titles to his credit, Algieri, 19-0 (8), is also a thinking man’s warrior.

Weighty Matters

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): There’s no doubt that the condition of Sergio Martinez’s knee impacted the result of his fight against Miguel Cotto this past weekend at the Madison Square Garden in New York. “Maravilla” was beaten from pillar to post from the very first round. It’s clear - and without taking all the credit away from Cotto’s strong outing - this was a factor. But what’s perhaps not talked about enough is the fact that Cotto - who Weighty Matters

The Rise of Ruslan

By Steve Kim (Photo © German Villasenor, MaxBoxing): There was a time when Ruslan Provodnikov - who faces Chris Algieri in defense of his WBO junior welterweight title from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (HBO 10 p.m., ET/PT) - could walk into a room with his hair on fire and go unnoticed. Nowadays at least when he goes to fights or other boxing-related functions, he finds himself the center of attention from adoring fans.

Trinidad Enters the Hall of Fame but Remains in Our Hearts

By Gabriel Montoya: I’ll always remember the first time I saw Felix Trinidad fight. It was 1994 and “Tito” was already a champion defending against Ramon “Yori Boy” Campas, who was 56-0 with 50 knockouts at the time. I had been away from the sport for some time; fresh out of school, I had been running around on my own and away from sports in general. I would see the occasional fight when I happened to go home and visit my family. My brother, Thom was and still is a true boxing fan... Trinidad Enters the Hall of Fame but Remains in Our Hearts

King Cotto

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): While the official results say that Miguel Cotto stopped Sergio Martinez in 10 rounds this past weekend at a packed Madison Square Garden, the middleweight championship really changed hands in the very first minutes of the bout. Martinez, who came into this fight as the recognized middleweight champion, was sent to the canvas thrice in the first stanza by the heavy and accurate hands of Cotto. The rest of the night was just mere window dressing King Cotto

Cotto makes Puerto Rican History, Stops Martinez

By Gabriel Montoya (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): Miguel Cotto had long fought in the shadow of other Puerto Rican greats. Try as he might over the years, Cotto just hadn’t gotten over the greatness hump.

Head-to-Head: Martinez vs. Cotto

By Coyote Duran and Gabriel Montoya: As far as overused adages in boxing go, “crossroads fight” has to be at or near the top of the list. But I’ll be damned if it doesn’t fit the bill here – even if the fight in question involves two hardened ring veterans six years apart from one another in age. How we got to this point tonight is certainly another issue you can debate to death or until your vocal cords give out. I don’t care. Knock yourself out. This is as bitchen as fights get and as far as Head-to-Head: Martinez vs. Cotto

Martinez vs. Cotto: I Can’t Wait

By Jason Gonzalez (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): With less than a week to go before the World Cup begins in Brazil, boxing figured it would be fitting to present its rendition of the grand festivities first.
